The SmackDown Women’s Championship match between Liv Morgan and Ronda Rousey had a ‘controversial’ finish to it. Rousey had Liv in an armbar but at the same time, Rousey’s shoulders were on the mat. Liv tapped out before the referee counted three, but the official was not paying attention to Morgan. Post-match, Rousey attacked both Liv and the referee.
